Electronic Spring Cleaning
E-Waste is just that: Electronic Waste. Combine E-Waste with Spring and you have a brilliant start.
Now is the time to throw out all your old redundant electronic items; which are probably gathering dust in the top of cupboards, in the back of drawers in the garage or office desk.
Here are a few points to assist you with your E-Waste Spring Clean:
1. Know what E-Waste is so that you can spread the word regarding the solution to this growing problem.
2. Be aware that throwing E-Waste out irresponsibly is hazardous to your health and those around you.
3. Safety should be number 1 priority when handling electronic equipment, for 2 reasons: a. Always wear gloves and a dust mask, b. Remove all data from media storage devices.
How our children can help solve the E-Waste problem
How many electronic gadgets does your family have? What’s your favorite electronic gadget? An iPad? Video game? TV? How many electronic or electrical devices does your family use? Would you believe that the average home has 24 electronic or electrical products! Do you ever think about what happens to these gadgets when you are done with them? When these devices reach their end of life, become redundant or obsolete they become electronic waste or E-Waste.
Consider for a moment:
10 years from now everyone has to walk around with dust masks, live in a house with artificial oxygen pumped in, every bottle and cup has a water purifier, and worst of all, our children and grand-children can't play outside - at all.
This is what could become a reality should all of us continue to forget about everything around us, with the only focus on ourselves. We need to take responsibility for our actions.
Every little bit of effort makes a big change. The items you sort and drop off for recycling will not go to a landfill and poison our water and food sources - this is the start of the clean up.
What is already out there is tasked to companies to collect and send to certified recycling companies to process and send the raw materials (gold, silver, copper, etc) back to the manufacturers to produce new electronic devices - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
